Indonesian film competes at Moscow festival

An Indonesian movie entitled Dilema is competing at a Detective Film Festival in Moscow, which kicked off on April 25.

The omnibus crime drama movie is competing against films from England, Lithuania, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Republic of Czechoslovakia, Iran, China, New Zealand, Bulgaria, Turkey, Argentina and Russia.

“I am proud and happy to see that my first directed movie can compete in an international film festival. This will encourage me to do better,” actress turned director Wulan Guritno said during the opening of the festival in Moscow on Tuesday.

She attended the festival along with the movie cast, such as Jajang C. Noer, Adila Dimitri, Robby Ertanto and Rahman Fajar Ardiansyah.

Aji Surya, the Indonesian consulate general’s coordinator for social and cultural events in Moscow, said that the movie’s presence at the festival showed that the Indonesian creative industry was developing and starting to get international recognition.

“We will screen the movie at the Moscow State University for International Relations to introduce it to Russian youths,” he said in a press release sent to The Jakarta Post on Thursday.

The movie will also be promoted at the Silk Screen Asian Film Festival in Pittsburgh, US. (iwa)
